Alex Pietrangelo's up to stay with the big boys, per Andy Strickland and the blog Future Considerations. The Blues do have eight healthy defensemen, so there's not a sure thing that he's going to play every game. However, he is certainly not part of the on-ice issues, and the young defenseman is playing at a higher level than he was last season.
Because of age, the AHL isn't an option. Petro's far outplayed his level of competition at the juniors level. Him staying put with the Blues is the best thing for him, and probably the best thing for the club.
